Why The Holiday Season Evokes A Range of Emotions

Joy Lim Nakrin & Dr Karen Ruskin

The week immediately following Thanksgiving often presents an uptick in the human emotional response with a wide range of emotions. This is the topic I discussed this morning live-on-air during my bi-weekly mental health segment on NBC Boston’s NECN with anchor Joy Lim Nakrin. Why does the holiday season evoke a range of emotions? Are there tips for one’s self and how to help loved ones experience the best version of mental health this holiday season? This is the focus during my segment. If you missed it live, you are invited for viewing on demand: Handling Emotions Post Thanksgiving.
